Yes! Grijalva now joins the very short list of Congressman, along with Luis Gutierrez, who have the cojones and are willing to be handcuffed for a cause that they believe in. Apparently, Republican Congressman are unwilling to risk sullying their Men's Wearhouse suits, brave the mystery meat cuisine or fathom, even a day, missing Happy Hour.
The contributions undocumented immigrants make to American society and the tax base by far outweigh any costs. Do some research. It is also hypocritical to despectively refer to your fellow human beings as a "bunch of illegal aliens" when we are a nation comprised predominately of immigrants. The only real Americans are Native Americans. Furthermore, for every undocumented immigrant there is an American employer who is breaking the law by hiring undocumented workers and exploiting the vulnerable. The truth is that the enormous profits that Capitalism generates cannot be had without exploitation. Period. Justice won't be served until American employers are handcuffed, convicted and tossed into privatized prisons to pay for their crimes.
You were corrupted young... I was 13.
